Great news for the north east though.
I'm glad to see the Northeast getting a store. Midlands next??
@martyn, @minifigman11, @Thego
At last I will possibly get a Lego brick store kit. Will probably buy a UCS X-wing as qualifying purchase.
If you don't get the cultural references, go and spend 10 hours watching Our Friends in the North. :)
Cast of Geordie Shore with Lego pavement puke accessory?
I don't hold much prejudice, just bought a red car after deciding the pearlescent black would be too much work to keep looking clean.
There would be plenty of historic local people (miners, shipbuilders etc) but not sure what they would use for current day.

"This is my first airplane, my first trip outside Japan. I don't even know how to get into the plane. When they are serving the food, I ask them how much is it; they say, ‘No, you don't have to pay.'"
When he reached London, his lack of preparation became apparent. "When I arrived at Heathrow, I ask at the information desk, ‘I want to be racing driver, where can I go?' It's true. They say, ‘You should go Newmarket - race course there.' I got a ticket, took the national coach."
So on a dark and miserable October evening, Inoue rattles out of London and into deepest Norfolk. "The driver says, ‘Newmarket,' so I get off. Then I ask a man, ‘Is this race course?' He says, ‘Yes, this is horse-racing course.' Horse racing! Not car. Very disaster."
Mind you driving from Bracknell to Newcastle just for an excuse to visit a lego store does seem a tad extreme!!
We NEED one in reading!!
Glasgow is a bit of a pain to get to when you don't have a car... one in Edinburgh would be super! kthxbai!
It is a bit like the one in Leeds, hardly any distance at all from the station so ideal if you are carrying heavy bags.
If I do want to keep a set pristine, I take bubble wrap and a large canvas bag. Whether going by car or train.
Swindon maybe? There are some good spots to be had in the Outlet, and there's the link to Steam to exploit.
Has the Southampton one opened yet?

Sorry for the late reply. Just to confirm we are having a Grand Opening event, which starts on the 17th of February, where we will be having a ‘Big Build’ in the Metrocentre. Children spend half an hour building, then can come into store for an in-store hunt. From Thursday 20th through till Sunday 23rd we will have exclusive gift with purchases, when you spend over £25 in store. I have listed these below.
Thursday – Exclusive LEGO store Minifigure
Friday – LEGO Store Metrocentre T-shirt.
Saturday – LEGO store building set.
Sunday – Exclusive BAM pouch.
What is a 'BAM pouch' is the first thing that springs to mind?
Thanks for the info - i'll be there to get myself a Lego store set on the Saturday - always been a bit envious when the previous openings have happened elsewhere in the country.
BAM = build a minifig???
